Will Smith loses his Brilliance

Will Smith has reportedly dropped out of upcoming sci-fi movie Brilliance.

The Men In Black actor was due to star in the big screen adaptation of Marcus Sakey's novel but had to pull out for scheduling reasons, reported Deadline.

Production on the project is due to start in the summer, but it seems the timing didn't work for Will.

The film, which will be directed by Julius Onah and has a screenplay penned by David Koepp, is set in a world where people are born with extraordinary abilities, and are known as "brilliants".

One federal agent uses his hunting gifts to hunt down a terrorist, another "brilliant", who plans to start a civil war.

Noomi Rapace is tipped to co-star in the film. The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo actress has apparently been in negotiations about a role.
